If you are looking for a book that will cause you to yell and have to take numerous breaks to collect your thoughts, then this is for you. A unique story of comedy and tragedy, Chuck Palahniuk does not fail to send his audience through a mind-twisting rollercoaster ride. Different from many other books out there, “Invisible Monsters” is one that you should go into knowing next to nothing. The various twists and turns Palahniuk offers readers is one of the best elements of the story. This novel is definitely a memorable one and something that can be read again and again, each time revealing more details that can easily be missed the first time around.

Words cannot express the intense creativity this novel holds and the only way to fully experience that is to read the novel for yourself.
